In this paper, we analyze how the non-positive social influence affects group polarization by adding influence factor into the classic voter model. Through model simulation, we observe that a group would self-organize into two-polarization pattern, under no imposing intervention, which is entirely different from the result of drift to an extreme polarization dominant state in the classic voter model.
